Not sure if this is acceptable on this part of the forum, so apologies if this needs to be moved or deleted.
Not sure If I ever mentioned on this board specifically who I wanted to win the fight, but I clearly wanted Sonnen to win. I knew deep down Silva was/is the greatest MMA fighter on the planet, yet I just really pegged Sonnen as having the tools to dethrone him.
Long story short. I eat my words willingly. I had a blast watching this fight, and as a guy who's always bet on Silva for every single fight, I absolutely see now I was foolish to believe otherwise.
Thanks to Dana White and all the fans that made MMA the greatest sport in history!
On a side note, did anybody else think he was going to retire after this fight? Between the bowing prior to the match, his family coming in the octagon after his win, I was sure he'd publicly retire right then.
